if 'squares' of bittersweet chocolate aren't available, what would the equivalent be in miniature bittersweet chocolate chips (which are available) ??
PS, bittersweet and semisweet are not the same thing. I am an avid baker and visit all the specialty stores, along with regular grocery stores. I have never seen bittersweet chips. At what store do you purchase them?
Equal Exchange makes a 70 percent bittersweet chocolate chip. There are other brands as well although you may have to order them online if not available in your local market places. If unable to find chips locally however attempt to look first for discs which tend be more readily available than bittersweet chips in many store isles.
3 tablespoons dry, unsweetened cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon oil or melted Crisco = 1 square unsweetened (or bittersweet) chocolate.
I constantly pack goodies to send to deployed soldiers around the world. Would you recommend wrapping each square in plastic, freezing them & then using my foodsaver to help these keep longer? I have a similar recipe...but when I made these I knew I had to bake the love forward for our Troops! Thank You!
We think packing the bars individually using your foodsaver and then putting them in a container with a lid will do the trick. Thank you for what you do for our soldiers.
I expected to bite into dry wholegrain oats barely masquerading as a treat (AKA what my mother-in-law puts together). Instead I was delighted. It was sweet but not too sweet. Well balanced taste, plus great chewy texture. Satisfied my sweet tooth.
